SAN BERNARDINO – A vehicle theft lead CHP officers on an over 60-mile pursuit on from San Bernardino to Indio late Saturday night.
At around 10:20 p.m. a deputy from the Loma Linda Station attempted to stop the driver identified as 21-year-old Redlands resident, Raymond Gonzales. The stop was attempted on Coulston Street in San Bernardino due to Gonzales violating two undisclosed vehicle codes.
Gonzales, who was driving a white Lexus failed to yield. He fled at a high rate of speed in San Bernardino and Redlands subsequently entering the I-10 east. The deputies and the Sheriff’s helicopter followed into Riverside County as they awaited CHP officers to assume the pursuit.
Gonzales continued to drive erratically until CHP officers, when it was safe, utilized the spike strip to flatten one of the tires making Gonzales stop on the 10 freeway east at Monroe Street in the City of Indio. The vehicle was learned to be stolen from Loma Linda earlier that evening. Gonzales was arrested without further incident and booked into the Central Detention Center for felony evading, possession of stolen property and parole violation.
He is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail and is scheduled for an arraignment hearing at the San Bernardino County Superior Court on Tuesday.
